Winter Mountain Hares

If you are going to visit Speyside in winter then in addition to Ptarmigan you have to go in search of Mountain Hares. The good news is that you do not have to scale Cairngorm mountain to find the Hares, in fact a better option is the Findhorn valley, where you do not have to have crampons on your boots to reach your target. All this weeks photos were taken on my last visit to the Findhorn valley where, after a two hour trek, I came across an incredible twenty six Hares in the snow! Do I need to go again? Of course I do!
